This is the first study that empirically investigates preposition placement across all clause types. The study compares first-language (British English) and second-language (Kenyan English) data and will therefore appeal to readers interested in world Englishes. Over 100 authentic corpus examples are discussed in the text, which will appeal to those who want to see 'real data'
This book is intended for all students of German Studies and provides the full range of inflection and formation of words in German. It also covers the structure of the ›small‹ parts of speech and takes into account historical developments as well as the formation of foreign words. The presentation is oriented particularly on the new study curricula and is separated into introductory and advanced chapters. It is supplemented by numerous examples and problem-oriented discussions, exercises and sample solutions as well as references and an extensive glossary to facilitate exam preparation.
